My in-box was surprisingly active with LeBron James questions today. One was regarding the moment you see at the 1:58 mark in that video. The short version of this: LeBron was called for a foul in a tie game with 0.1 seconds left. Indy hits one free throw. In the process of the second free throw, LeBron starts walking off the floor.
He starts leaving before the game is over… even though Cleveland had no chance at all of winning no matter what happened. So… should we be pissed at him for leaving the floor before the final buzzer… or is this no big deal? One emailer, William, thinks its a big deal:
what really makes me angry is the way Lebron acted after the final call against him. Did you notice that he starts walking off the court before Granger shoots his last shot that he didn't even need to make. He is that pompous and entitled that he thinks he can walk off the court before the game is over.
There was a lot of swearing and anger towards no one calling him out on it. So here it is… I'm very interested in hearing what people have to say.
Other things out there: Chris Paul is a game time decision tonight. Here's apiece we'll all appreciate: Why everyone hates the Lakers. And the latest round of blogger MVP and ROY rankings are up. LeBron and Derrick Rose top the lists. There is a Celtic on the MVP list.
